Dr. Michael Völter, CEO of Voelter Financial Advisory GmbH (VFA), will join NowCM as a Strategic Adviser, with the additional intention of joining NowCM’s Board in the near future.
To his role at NowCM, Dr. Völter brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of European financial markets. Prior to establishing VFA last year, Dr. Völter was the Group CEO of the Stuttgart Stock Exchange, Europe’s sixth largest exchange group, and the Group CIO and CFO for SV SparkassenVersicherung, the €20bn (AuM) German insurance group. Among other noteworthy projects, he led the initiation of Europe’s first regulated crypto exchange and a successful retail distribution App for crypto currencies.
Robert Koller, the founder and CEO of NowCM commented: “As NowCM grows up, we are delighted to benefit from Michael’s operational management experience of implementing tech-and infrastructure-intensive business models and growth strategies. As the digitalisation of primary bond markets now gains pace, this will be essential for NowCM’s continued successful execution strategy.”
Dr. Michael Völter added: “With its excellent customer-centric automation and digitalisation solutions, NowCM faces a very promising future in the next chapter of international primary bond markets. The successful digitalisation of this sector is essential for all of us, as this will enable financial markets to adequately support increasingly data-intensive digital economies.
The establishment of superior new market standards and delivering operational excellence is, therefore, important already today for today’s financing strategies of companies, financial institutions as well as regional and national governments. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to offer my 25+ years of management experience in financial markets to support NowCM on this important mission.”
NowCM is a leading digital solutions and infrastructure provider for the primary debt markets. We provide a market-leading and cloud-native data (creation, negotiation and management) and end-to-end workflow platform that enables all stakeholders in primary bond markets to interact in a collaborative, open, yet secure manner.
We also facilitate access to primary markets for inaugural and infrequent issuers through our regulated TaaS (Treasury-as-a-Service), which operates as a funding “subsidiary” using standardised documentation (CSSF, Luxembourg).
NowCM also owns and operates a multi-lateral trading facility (MTF), which is the world’s first and only primary marketplace, regulated by the ACPR and AMF (France).
VFA advises the boards of several tech and financial markets, with a focus on younger companies seeking to capitalise on their growth potential. The services spans from providing traditional board governance expertise, to supporting the execution of operational strategies and projects.
